Derek Jeter‘s days as a Yankee are now numbered.
According to Jeter’s agent Casey Close, Jeter is announcing his retirement following the 2014 season. Jeter posted a statement on Facebook earlier this afternoon, stating that he was 100% certain that 2014 would be his final year playing professional baseball.
Although Jeter and Close have confirmed the information, it is not official as the Yankees have not heard about it as of yet.
Jeter has spent his entire career with the Yankees, winning five World Series Championships (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2009) in the process.
Derek Jeter has spoken to Hal Steinbrenner and it is Yankees official that Jeter will retire.
